This course focuses on Adobe® Illustrator® CC (2019), the component within CC used to create "drawn" graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Adobe® Photoshop® and other applications). With Illustrator's many easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you've always had as you've picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and "what ifs" during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at "how good" your work will appear, even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to use Adobe Illustrator CC to create illustrations that include graphics and text.
You have created simple artwork by using the basic drawing and painting tools available in Adobe® Illustrator® CC. You now want to use advanced tools, options, and effects to create complex artwork. In addition, you want to ensure that your artwork is ready for commercial printing and also save it for the web. In this course, you will draw complex illustrations and enhance them by using various painting options. You will also use painting tools, manage colors, format type, work with effects, prepare artwork for commercial printing, and prepare graphics for the web.
This course is a great component of your preparation for the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) Illustrator CC exam and the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Graphic Design & Illustration Using Adobe Illustrator exam.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to use Adobe Illustrator CC to create complex illustrations, format illustrations and type, and prepare documents for print and web.
